KnockoutJS Support


Will the official release of the JS tools have KnockoutJS support?

The current implementation I've seen in your documentation isn't complete so I was wondering if there will be a cleaner official implementation.

I've been evaluating many products and I want to use the grid tools for displaying data maintained in an observableArray.

We use websockets to update data that we display in the grid.

The reason we use knockout is we need to be able to "Merge" data from the server and the screen through user input and have the grid aggregate and group this combined data for user consumption.

Hi Robin ,

 We had given partial ‘Knockout JS’ support which include  observable data binding for our Essential JS widgets. We have planned to provide complete ‘Knockout JS’ support in our VOL 1, 2014 release. We have showcased the ‘Knockout JS’ support in our sample browser.

Hi there,
so does this mean that there will be proper knockout support across the controls? Because at the moment they are looking good, but there is no support for even text observables on text boxes or selects etc. which makes them pretty useless if you are using Knockout...

On dropdowns there is no initialization on the selected value. 
On textboxes there is no initialization either and when for example you use the arrows on a numeric, the viewmodel is not updated. When you type in it's fine...

Hi Christos,

Thanks for using Syncfusion Products.

Currently, we have given KnockOut JS support only for data source property for data bound widgets like Auto complete, Drop down list, Menu, Rotator Toolbar, Tree view and Tag cloud widgets. We have considered all your suggestions and we will implement the complete Knock out Support for all functionalities for all our Essential JS Widgets in our upcoming release (2014 Vol-1) which is expected to be rolled out at the end of the March. We appreciate your patience until then.

Please get back to us if you need further assistance.
